The economy's influence on the stock market can be seen by its impact on corporate profits. When the economy is in a recession and unemployment is high, then the profits of corporations will decline. This decline in profits will result in lower stock prices and ultimately a lower stock market in general. When the economy is doing well, corporate profits will increase, which will lead to higher stock prices.
